Hi,

I have been offered laptop by a dealer citing that he can sell it for discount price if I can compromise with some scratches on body etc..

The laptop is : Samsung RV NP-RV518-S01IN Laptop: Flipkart.com: Compare, Review Samsung Notebook

He is quoting Rs. 23K for it..

Should I go for it , its almost new, dealer says that he used it for display just to show.. since it got scratches , he want to sell it on discount as there are btter deals from samsung..

I was originally going for Samsung ci5, 1GB Nvidia 520mx, 750 GB / 4G RAM for 35K ..

Need advice soon, he said offer for me is for today only !

Alright..
Grabbed... !!!


It is confirmed that it was never used other than for showing off... It has FreeDOS installed which came from manufacturer ... I don't think dealer will take trouble to install FreeDOS on it to pretend its never used..


I spent good two hours at dealers place to verify things.. looks good apart of battery which needs to be calibrated.

He even said that I can use it for 2-3 days and if any issue he will take care !...

Lets hope for good !

You left out GT520 M .... i3 are mostly around 30K and its new only with some scratches (those are visible to me only as I know about them) ...

But its just for time being.. you know about my crashed hdd !!

520M isn't a big deal. Marginally better than hd3000. i3 is available around 23 something. Anyways you saved ~1k.

Bro but considering the same config from same brand costs around 5k or + more.
So considering that it is not a bad deal at all

No issue in it, I can still return it and get another one !
So what are the options ... bcz I see similar configs in 30K range .. if something for which I don't have to pay more then I can do it... !

looks good deal. but have a look at this model Asus K53SD-SX110D / 2nd Gen Ci3/4GB/500GB/2GB Graphics/Free DOS: Flipkart.com: Compare, Review Asus Notebook

for 30k range you can't get anything better than this.. :p

and 2GB graphics Wow... (i know its 610m just renamed 520m)
